On Wednesday, the House and Senate voted on a bill to end the government shutdown and preserve the full faith and credit of the United States of America. I supported that effort.
Our country could not afford to default on our obligations. The business and financial services communities agreed, and they supported passage of the bill. I'm including a letter of support from 251 pro-business organizations including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the American Farm Bureau, the National Association of Manufacturers and the National Federation of Independent Business.
We have much work left to do, and I remain committed to reducing spending and the debt. My vote on Wednesday was part of an effort to keep the government running and our obligations met while we continue that work.
